    Your perfect kind of pre-school, school, college or uni.

    I am wondering just what INFPs all feel, about education that really would suit them?

    I am not really into unrealistic ideas such as sex all day, or not going in to school at all, because ideally no one would make them go there, but I far rather wonder if an educational utopia can be collectively created by you, which would be ideal for INFPs?

    Something tailor made for you. Some system or arrangement where you can get your education, but also to evolve and prosper as individualistic human beings.

    Something where you can expand , and discover new skills and opportunities for a complete and whole life as an adult INFP one day soon?

    Included in this, are those of you who have the benefit of hind sight, and now know just what you would have liked retrospectively?

    Please enjoy the process. : )

    I imagine a little boy/girl in a dusty, used-book store, (the dust catching beams of light) with a father/grandfather figure proprietor who makes book recommendations, and gives you sweets.

    I hated school and think the curriculum was designed for extroverts and I spent the majority of my time staring out of the window daydreaming about various things.

    With these things in mind I think that a small group of children would be more beneficial. This would aid social interaction and it gives more individual time with the teacher. Also, be outside as much as possible.. :)

    No group work. If I'm paying tuition I should be in control of my grades. And I definitely shouldn't be babysitting peers that show up high.

    That'd be about the only thing I'd change about formal education.

    My ideal education would be protégé to someone I respect.

    I believe that my perfect school would begin with who was teaching. Great minds would teach thought-provoking lessons... even in Math! Teachers would be paid very well because of the pure stress of their job and what they are doing for society. There would be internet access throughout the school leading to great websites of thought as well as satire, and the libraries (Yes, plural) would be chock full of literature! The librarian would be, as @Michael Ford put it, a beloved old man whose laughter could be heard throughout the school and whose knowledge of his craft could fill an ocean. This is only the beginning.

    If each classroom could be enclosed under a different willow tree, that'd be cool. And we'd collaborate with the professors to form our syllabi so we could weed out all the boring things while still learning as much. Deadlines would be like a five-day range instead of one certain day. And it would be more hands-on, and no classes could begin before 1pm. :)

    I agree with everything that everyone has said so far.

    I'm going to start with more realistic suggestions (that I'd genuinely like to see implemented) and then work my way towards the absurd. :p

    I took one AP class in high school (although I wish I would've taken more), and that ended up being my favorite class because it focused on improving each person's individual skills and not just getting them to reach an acceptable standard. So one thing that I wish classes would do more would be to focus on individual growth and not so much competency. I loved seeing my scores progressively improve throughout the year since they demonstrated that I was getting better, and I think that seeing actual proof of progress would help so many other students who felt as though they weren't learning anything.

    I also wish that schools prepared students more to find potential careers. As a rising college freshman, I hate that I'm expected to choose a major and pay money for a career that I don't even know if I'll want to pursue in the future. Because of this, I'd really like to see high schools offer a wider variety of classes focused on career exploration - more nursing classes, psychology classes, classes focused on education, advanced science/math courses, etc. Ideally, I'd like senior year (and possibly even junior year) to solely be focused on career exploration (although students would be allowed to opt out if they already knew what career they'd like to pursue).

    In addition, I'd like to see personal exploration courses implemented (although these would also be optional). An in-depth class on MBTI would be amazing if taught by someone with very in-depth knowledge of both the system and other people.

    I would allow students a designated one week break each quarter, so basically, they'd get to choose to take a week off whenever they'd like. However, they'd still be expected to learn whatever material they missed, although they wouldn't have to make up any work if they passed the "welcome back" test, an assessment covering the previous work's material (so they'd have to study a bit during the break in order to pass - not too much, though :p). Summer breaks would also be extended to 3-4 months, and winter breaks would be about a month long.

    I'd love for the food selection to improve not just in quality but also in quantity. More options would be great, and I'd even like to see food courts be incorporated at each school with a wide variety of choices. I'd also extend the lunch period to over an hour long, allowing students to socialize more, work ahead on homework (which would be cut down greatly), explore the school, leave campus to eat lunch if necessary, etc. Speaking of which, I'd make each day's schedule more reasonable in general with classes starting considerably later and ending only slightly later.

    I would love for schools to look much more fantastical and not something you'd see every day (similar to Hogwarts). Each school would have its own theme, and there would be an abundance of secret passageways and hidden areas for the more curious students. Scenery around each school would also look much more beautiful and connect itself more with nature with breathtaking courtyards, forest trails, ponds, etc. located on the premises.

    I'd love for seats inside each classroom to be more comfortable. Perhaps they could be made out of plush, massage your back, and have a build in sound system that you could plug your iPod (or whatever you listen to music on) into while you work.

    Finally, I'd love for soundtracks and instrumentals (specifically Harry Potter ones in my dream school) to be played in the hallways throughout each day, making the school feel more like an escape from the real world.

    I think the place is important, schools are so packed with people, there should be more space, and more little nice rooms where one or a few people can work alone, and it should look more inhabited, and prettier in general.

    One should be able to choose if wanting to attend early or late classes, that way the school wouldn't bee as packed either, if some where there during the early hours and some during the late.

    There should not be homework, what adults, after a full day of work, have to bring home a few hours more of work to do, and some for the weeken? the stressed ones. Rather a little longer days and no homework, I think that would help a lot.

    Ideally no grades but passed or not passed. If higher education or emplyers want to know if you are better than the others they can test you themselves for the specific things required with them.

    More school democracy, and more space to choose to learn the thing one find interesting, though also being introduced to new things, as a young person might not yet know what there is out there to be interested in.

    More focus on developing skills and methods than learning facts etc. But I think school is already going in that direction.

    More connected to the world and society and not as isolated, at a young age being able to take part in the society, school introducing you to lighter work, media, organisations, nature... Now I have the feeling children and teenagers are in some kind of constant "preparation stage". Just waiting and waiting to be able to start their "real" lives, that are not just simulations of what will be once they finish school. Make them a part of the community and society they are part of more, for real, make them feel important in some other way than future assets.
